Hello Mystery Readers,

I have been invited to a number of book clubs recently, and I am really enjoying the discussions. If you have friends or family who are reading White Tombs and would like me to attend a book club discussion, please have them contact me at We can also do a "call in" if you have a speaker phone.

I will be signing books at the Barnes and Noble Bookstore in Maplewood, MN this Saturday, May 10th, from 12:00-2:00, as part of a fundraiser for Vadnais Heights Elementary School.
